Without spoiling the ending, I personally called who the iron spider would be months ago when I read the solicitation. There would not have been a better choice and I am glad I was not wrong. This adds a massive complication into Miles is life. The story was well written, even though slow. That's Bendis for you though. Great dialogue and a snails pace story. Not that I mind. The burdens for Miles more
